Delta brings proven COVID-19 vaccine transport capabilities to shipments across the globe

“That’s why we created a vaccine task force months ago charged with understanding requirements and working with healthcare and pharmaceutical experts, building scalable solutions to support the industry. After successfully shipping test vaccines throughout the summer and fall we are confident in our capability and stand ready to help ensure approved vaccines are broadly distributed.”

Delta has introduced enhancements to our existing pharmaceutical delivery protocols to support safe, swift distribution, including:

  • The highest level of access and boarding priority
  • A Vaccine Control Tower with 24/7 centralized monitoring and customer reporting
  • Pharma-readyCargo-only charter options for operations within and outside our existing network

Delta has extensive experience in shipping vaccines and was the first U.S. passenger airline to receive IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma Logistics Certification at our headquarters and Atlanta warehouse. We already offer four tailored pharmaceutical shipping options which meet specific temperature requirements for vaccines ensuring integrity through the entire journey.
